A former governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, has called for validation of folk medicine in Nigeria to address the rising cases of organ failure.

He made the call in Abuja on Tuesday during a one-day research products exhibition and award ceremony organized by the Nigerian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NSBMB).

“I’m particularly interested in the validation of folk medicine in Nigeria. Lately, there has been a high increase in cases of organ failure, especially the kidney. We need to look at some of the things we’re consuming that we were not consuming before and try to bring out what could be the culprit that is poisoning our kidneys, and causing organ failure,” he said.

He said there was the need for collaboration between biochemists and professional disciplines for advancement in medicine and food technology.

NSBMB President, Prof. Matthew Wegwu, said the association was very proud of Ikpeazu.

“You’re a silent achiever. We went through your records and achievements as governor of Abia State, we arrived at one thing, that you’re a transformative scholar in leadership.

“I was privileged to assess your work. Even as a governor, you have beautiful publications and journals and over 45 published articles in Environmental Biochemistry.”
